What is a CBD massage?
Throughout most massages, your massage therapist will use a variety of oils and lotions to lubricate his/her hands and your skin. During a CBD massage, your therapist will incorporate CBD-infused oils and lotions at key points during your treatment, targeting areas of discomfort.
CBD is a natural, non-intoxicating chemical found in cannabis, meaning you will feel no “high” from using CBD. High-quality CBD products, like those used by Soothe therapists, are safe and meet federal guidelines third-party tested for their effectiveness and dosage. Soothe therapists use hemp-derived CBD products, which are legal and approved for use in the United States.
Benefits of CBD massage
While there are many claims touting the benefits and uses for CBD products on the market today, there are still studies being conducted to determine how effective the compound is for treating certain conditions.
However, research has already proven that CBD can have many benefits, especially when used in conjunction with massage therapy. When applied topically, as during massage therapy, a study from the National Institute of Health showed that CBD has many benefits.
CBD can give you a post-massage glow, too. Because CBD derived from hemp has high concentrations of omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids, it is a potent moisturizer that helps promote healthier skin.
How to prepare for your CBD massage
Take a shower before your session.
Not only does showering before your massage help wash away the stress and grime from the day, but it can actually help you reap great benefits from your CBD massage. Clean, dry skin is better for absorbing the CBD oil.
Communicate with your therapist.
If you have any concerns or questions about using CBD products during your massage, make sure to communicate them with your therapist! Tell him/her about any tension or pain you are experiencing so that they can be sure to focus extra attention on treating those areas during your CBD massage as well.
CBD is available as an optional enhancement in select Soothe areas.
